In previous research, we developed a method to automate the conventional evaluation of eye misalignment (cover test) and distinguish misaligned eyes from their movements. However, this method had the problem that vertical eye movements were affected by the eyelids and eyelashes, and could not be completely detected. To solve this problem, we have developed another method to recognize abnormalities by observing only the movement near the center of the pupil.
